    Kit is out, picked up the stock version today for $36 at the LHS

    Don't think anyone has mentioned it yet but I'd really like a lhd dash for the Tamiya Isuzu Vehicross
  3. gasman added a post in a topic Any reviews of AMT 1965 Pontiac 2+2?   

    Doesn't this kit have an inaccurate body, too short iirc

    There is a small difference in the mounts for the i6 and the v8. But any modeler should have problem changing them, just required drilling a hole in the frame.

    Everything else is a direct swap. The side trim can be easily shortened to fit the short bed. The interiors are also a direct swap

    Several sites are listing it as "in stock". So check your LHS it may be out

    The f100 wasn't done in a week, I've read it took 3-4 months

    Eldorod or the F100, nothing else interests me

    I feel really lucky, I have two great hobby shops very close to me, and both are doing really well, ones been open since the 40's, and the other is in a very busy shopping center and is always full of shoppers

    We did lose a local hobby shops about a year ago, but that was because of bad management, not lack of business
  11. gasman added a post in a topic Gimme 5 automotive subjects you'd like to see reissued by Round-2?   

    Being realistic, tooling i know still exists

    AMT Subaru Brat, only issued once, never reissued as something else
    MPC 70 Bonneville, last reissued 10 years ago by Model King
    MPC/AMT 83 Chevy 4x4, last seen about 10 years ago, and those issues go for big bucks, shouldve bought more
    MPC/AMT 72 GMC step side, last seen about 20 years ago,
    MPC Pinto wagon, last seen around 80 as the Pony Express kit
  12. gasman added a post in a topic Revells newer release of the 59 Caddillac Eldorado body issue   

    That's bad, I guess I got really lucky, mine has a perfectly straight body, no issues
  13. gasman added a post in a topic Revell 3rd Quarter Announcements?   

    Really happy too that we are getting a NASCAR Gen 6 kit. no big deal to me that it's a snap. Aftermarket should be offering some good decals, and it's the right scale 1/24

    No surprise too see the 17 Raptor. Nice too see the Olds Pace Car kit. The first issue from about 6 years ago was quickly discontinued.

    Decal sheet alone looks great. Screamin chicken and trans am decals. Those decals will find there way to other builds
